LINCOLN, Nebraska — After 12 years as the state's top lawyer, Attorney General Jon Bruning says he'll open a law firm in Lincoln when he steps down in January.
Bruning told the Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/1xRlWfY ) Wednesday that he'll be taking two top attorneys from his staff with him: Dave Cookson and Katie Spohn. Bruning's chief of staff, Holley Bolen, will be joining them.
Bruning says a big part of the practice will be to help clients "navigate the regulatory regime here in Lincoln and in Washington." He also says it will be "a little law firm that we'd like to grow up to be a pre-eminent law firm in the Midwest."
